    Default speaking of wine sites

    ok so i have been enjoing the site that was posted, but since some people
    think the prices are too high... where do you shop for your wine? on line or
    in person? and what is your price range, and finally what is your favorite
    wine and its price?

    I get different wines from different places. One of my favorites is
    http://www.baldwinvineyards.com/ which was begun by an accountant from
    Clifton, NJ and his wife. Their strawberry wine is fantastic for
    dessert with or without icecream on the side. Their chardonnay took
    gold in France. What I drink most is plonk at about $10/4-liter jug
    and sherry at about $9 for 750 ml.

    Locally

    I make my own from kits or juice. most kits will make 5-6 gallons (25-30
    bottles) ( Includes everything but equipment)

    They range anywhere from around $52 up to $200. ($1.75-7.00 bottle)
    You can even get fruit juice in cans that will make 3 gallons stating around
    $25 up to $35 ( You will need to add other ingredients)

    I just bought 6 bottles at my local grocery store, HEB. They were on
    sale for $5.99 each and are California wines. How bad could they be?

    I make much of what I drink so the cost is about $3 a bottle. It is decent
    wine, equal to the $8 to $12 retail wines.

    I buy some boxed wines at 3 liters for $20. Black box is probably most
    frequent.

    When I visit a winery, I'll buy their wines, usually it is in the $10 to $20
    range. There are a couple of good wineries in our area of CT, but when
    travelling, I'll check any in the are I'm in. Niagara wine trail was great
    too. .

    As for a favorite wine, I don't have any. I try a lot of different ones

    I have bought Ballet of Angels by the case though.
    http://www.balletofangels.com/
    from http://www.sharpehill.com/

    Near us is http://www.taylorbrookewinery.com/
    They have both a raspberry and a chocolate desert wine that is quite nice.

    You don't want to know! :-) How bad are they likely to be gets a more
    reasonable answer. There are lots of very decent jug and box wines
    around here. (Viking Liquors is gone, but there's another good store
    in its place.)

    I wouldn't have expected Viking to last. Jimmy Jones, died even before
    we left KP. He was a prince of a man.

    I'll let you know when I open them.
